Laurie Anderson's record release party for O Superman 7" (and Walk The Dog) (released on 110 Records) on April 28, 1980 at The Kitchen in New York City. Charles Amirkhanian interviews Laurie Anderson, Bob George, John Gibson, Phill Niblock, Roma Baran and Ken Friedman. Like Hitchcock's "Rope" this slice of reality in one take features Amirkhanian wandering through a dense crowd of revelers, nabbing interviewees spontaneously as they appear in his peripheral vision. No splices!!

La Monte Young is an American composer living in New York, where he is associated with the group of composers who have derived a good deal of their impetus from the music and personality of John Cage. He was a student at the University of California, where much of his early music was performed in the late 1950s. Since that time he has gone on to fame as a progenitor of the minimalist music movement. His hypnotic electronic and electric keyboard works, ranging from drones to blues and from equal...

Literary critics see Arthur Machen’s works as a significant part of the late Victorian revival of the gothic novel and the decadent movement of the 1890s, bearing direct comparison to the themes found in contemporary works like Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. The White People is a highly influential horror story of a young girl's discovery of ancient magic. It was written in the late...
